Especially for the festival De Wereld van Witte de With we converted our new office to the extra exhibition space that's on our list. For three days we make space for the presentation DIY or DIE.
DIY or DIE shows the results of the The Make Class. This is a project for second year students audiovisual design (Willem the Kooning Academy), initiated by media artist Theodore Watson. The Make Class comes forth from the Do It Yourself philosophy and the idea that you can produce your own things in this excessive consumption culture.
For this project, old materials and objects were `upcycled'. This happens in such a way that the final results are more smart, economic, and functional etc. than the original. During the festival weekend the public can test the objects and enjoy live demonstrations. Do you want to copy the objects at home, take along the instructables and make things yourself!
